It has been stated many times that we're not about to feature every single metal band that has ever existed. Usually we only add already accomplished bands with at least one full-length release. Still, many bands escape our attention, so it's up to you to tell us which of them are the most worthy of being featured on Metal Storm.
Bands listed here are suggested for addition by our users. You can vote for these bands as well as provide additional comments - both of which will be taken into account when we look for the next band to feature on Metal Storm. If the band is not in the list, you can suggest it here (you need to be a registered member).
Make sure you also check the Blacklisted bands - these are the bands we're not going to add at all, since we feel they won't be appropriate for this website. Yes, some non-metal bands are already featured here, but that's not the reason to add a lot more - so we don't accept arguments like "hey, this band is way more metal than band X you have featured!".

Not quite a metal band, but seeing that other hard rock or glam bands are featured, I do not see why these guys shouldn't be here. Great White is one of the better bands from that thoroughly commercial movement of the 80s.

We got a full length cd as required. It'd be a great honour to be featured on this site. Here you can find some info:
Sycon bears just one thing in mind with their music - Total Havoc!
Brutal guitar riffs, versatile vocals, stomping beats and atmospheric synths defines the music, all while retaining their melodic metal roots.
Groove Factor Guaranteed!

Shorty after bassist Lars joined Sycon. 2014 they released the single "Downer" with female singer Seline. In early 2015 they finally found their permanent frontman Daniel, which worked before with Ill Kommodity and as rapper KoH Kain and is known as streamer KæinPlay.

Innate Concept's musical identity is rooted in the Progressive Metal genre - and the word "progression" is to be taken literally. Innate Concept strives to incorporate elements, instruments and ideas normally not found in classic Progressive Metal. The newest album "Sunset In Our Eyes" combines elements from electronica and classical elements into a whole new and unique sound. A multitude of synthesizers create the atmosphere, color and texture, the mighty Taiko drum ensemble delivers power, groove and impact, while the Armenian Duduk conjures up ethereal melodies, adding yet another layer to the rich-bodied symphonic orchestra. A piano and various acoustic guitars are another integral part of melodic storytelling and quite frequently intertwine with other instruments. All of this takes place planted firmly on the foundation of thundering drums, shredding guitars and a nasty, angry bass. Innate Concept's music is challenging, demanding, cunning, powerful, intense, yet so delicate and fragile. Be prepared, for it will demand your full attention - and it will surprise you if you dare a listen. Debut album can be purchased at http://www.innateconcept.com/shop/

Progressive Metal band in the vein of The Human Abstract's Digital Veil album without the harsh vocals. Their debut album Reticence: The Musical has already been released. Definitely worth a listen.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Industrial Melodic Metal Band EDGE OF PARADISE Gear Up To Reek Havoc On The World With Forthcoming Debut Release MASK!
The Los Angeles based female-fronted metal band, Edge Of Paradise, are ready to set the world aflame, with a worldwide digital sales premiere on Loudtrax of their debut CD, Mask.
Check it out here: http://www.loudtrax.com/Artist/EdgeOfParadise .
Edge Of Paradise is fronted by the stunning Margarita Monet who delivers potent yet melodic vocals along with virtuoso keyboard playing that adds a unique classical flair to the band's sonic metal assault.
Combine that with the ferocious fretwork of guitarist Dave Bates who intertwines compelling leads and bombastic riffs and you've got a band that offers something highly refreshing in today's modern metal sound-scape.
Mask also features guest appearances by renowned session drummer Gregg Bissonette (David Lee Roth, Don Henley and major session drummer for hit-TV and movie soundtracks) and bassist extraordinaire Tony Franklin (The Firm, Glenn Hughes, Blue Murder, Roy Harper) who prove to be the ultimate rhythm section when it comes to the hard-edged rock sounds contained on the debut recordings.
Other guests on the CD include bassist Bjorn Englen (Yngwie Malmsteen), drummer Craig Anderson and backing vocals from Robin McCauley (MSG) who also co-wrote most the songs along with Dave and Margarita, and cutting-edge songwriter Ryan Jones.
Edge of Paradise was formed in the beginning of 2011 from the ashes of Dave Bates' former band Bleed, which was fronted by Robin McAauley. The influences on the CD are incredibly diverse, and have been pegged as "Industrial Melodic Chaos". Margarita states "it has always been my vision to create music that will be around for a while and I feel like we have really achieved that with Mask." The band plans to tour the US at the start of the year 2012, to promote Mask. Along with Margarita and Dave, drummer Kevin Katich and bassist Steven Cook will round off the live band.
Mask features 9 stellar tracks, highlighted by "Falling Down," "Tail Of The Gun," the title track "Mask," and modern-day power ballad "We Breath".

Winner of Budweiser 2nd Skin Rock contest in Quebec. Very close to Deathstars and Cradle of Filth with some elements of Marilyn Manson maybe. They have already realesed two album and one video clip. Not very new but really good nonetheless.

In memory of Andrew "Mac" McDermott's (ex-Threshold) untimely passing, going back and rediscovering this band was a jewel for me to hear. I feel many fans of Threshold, and those looking for a truly underrated band need to know they existed and whose CDs can still be purchased, if they want. I also feel MetalStorm should list earlier bands from our most favorite/popular musicians, like Roy Khan's (ex-Kamelot) earlier band, Conception. They may not exist, but they should not be forgotten.

Overwhelming visual and sound impact, they merge metal and techno, together with non-conventional, highly critical, destabilizing urgent lirics in Italian.
I highly recommend them.

Band that consists of Neurosis members, plus some additional musicians. They play the experimental ambient music that infuse tribal-like sounds. Many of their releases coincide with Neurosis releases: for example, Tribes of Neurot's "Grace" is meant to be played simultaneously with Neurosis' "Times of Grace", for an enhanced experience that neither disc delivers on its own.

Is a singer and songwriter living by turns in Germany, London, USA and Slovakia. Her music represents temperament and unpredictability, orchestral and theatrical monumentality and playful bitterness of language. All of this makes the Sno-fans relate to her and her music.

"Bands like Aborym, Ensoph, and Ram-zet (just to name a few) have been attempting for years to find that perfect blend of industrial elements with extreme metal tendencies to give music that extreme anti-human nature, but with their first attempt, La Division Mentale has gotten closer than any of the above mentioned" ( quote from : http://www.heathenharvest.com/article.php?story=20070708163115679 ) .
